Getting to Hotel from Narita

I am trying to figure out how to get to my Hotel Century Southern Tower without using my J Rail pass. Need to save it as only am buying 14 day pass & will be there 16 days.

You should take the N'Ex and buy the N'Ex+Suica package.

I agree. Buy the Suica/NEX package and take the NEX train directly to Shinjuku:


The JR Pass exchange office at NRT often has a long queue--it's time-consuming. Activate your pass at Shinjuku Station. You can go to the Information Center at South or East ticket gate. They are open from 9am-7pm.

You would still need to head to NRT's JR Travel Service Center to buy Suica-NEX. The last time I bought this, Suica-NEX and JR Pass exchanges had different lines. Hopefully, Suica-NEX still has its own queue so you can then follow Shibuyakko's advice and take care of the JR Pass exchange later.

At Shinjuku, later in the evening is typically the best time to go to the Travel Service Center as the line is usually shorter.
